Wichita County Appraisal District Employee Summary – 2021

Wichita Appraisal District (Wichita CAD) overhead cost can be primarily attributed to labor. In 2021, Wichita Appraisal District had a total of 19 employees, including 9.75 appraisers. The Wichita CAD budget increased from $1.54 million in 2013 to $1.82 million in 2021, an 18% increase. However, they have over 78,422 tax parcels to value each year. With so many parcels to review, so few appraisers and limited ability to inspect property other than via aerial photography, you can see how there is room for error. This provides ample opportunities for property owners to appeal based on property description, valuation model, comparable sales, or assessment comparables. Property tax appeals save Wichita County owners over $3.57 MM annually.
